My first experience of a Mac was when the father in law bought one of those bright orange all in ones, what a gimmick I thought, not even a proper computer. It took me a few years until I converted fully and as you can see, I can evangelise as much as the next trendy/girly/arty Apple Fan.

Perhaps the best illustration of Mac versus PC is the old email that points out amusing little quirks that a car might have if it were made by Microsoft, like pressing Start to stop it.
